Warren Corp Textile Mill acquired by American Woolen begins production

Warren Corp textile mill, a 161 year-old mill closed in June, after Warren decided to do so was acquired by American Woolen CEO Jacob Harrison Long which is renamed as American Woolen Warren Mill and has begun production. It is Stafford’s only surviving textile mill.

American Woolen CEO Jacob Harrison Long said that he is “selectively” hiring back workers — those laid off when the mill was being closed and has hired about 20 so far. The people who are coming back are critical to running the operation at the current output.

When the mill was purchased, there were only two full-time employees remaining. Long said that they has been hiring people on a week-to-week basis — two or three workers a week — based on production needs. His hope is to keep hiring over the next three to six months.

The products produced in the mill will be sold beginning the week of Aug. 11. The mill will target the customers of the previous owner, Italian clothier Loro Piana.

Long said that he is overwhelmingly happy and “very pleased with the acquisition of the mill and the level of production so far. He was attracted to the mill initially because of the unique skills of its employees.

Long is looking forward to make American Woolen, America’s premier supplier of worsted and woolen fabrics.

The Warren Mill had been a subsidiary of Loro Piana for 25 years and was to have closed its doors for good in June. The textiles mill products include cashmere, camel hair, silk, and worsted wool.

Loro Piana, billing itself as one of the world’s largest producers of cashmere fabrics, supplies high-end clothing stores such as Brooks Brothers, Neiman Marcus, and Hart, Schaffner & Marx, a company history says.
